WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J., Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Parke Bancorp, Inc. ("Parke Bancorp") (NASDAQ: PKBK), the parent company of Parke Bank, announced its operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

Parke Bancorp reported net income available to common shareholders of $8.46 million or $1.42 per diluted common share for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to $6.30 million, or $1.06 per diluted common share, for the year ended December 31, 2012, an increase of 34.3%.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2013 net income available to common shareholders was $3.08 million, or $0.51 per diluted common share, compared to net income of $1.70 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, an increase of 81.0%.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2013, Parke Bancorp completed a private placement of newly designated 6.00% Non-Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock, Series B, with a liquidation preference of $1,000 per share.  The Company sold 20,000 shares in the placement for gross proceeds of $20.0 million. Proceeds after expenses were $18.54 million. Parke Bancorp utilized a portion of the proceeds to repurchase and retire 16,288 shares of outstanding Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A (the "Series A Preferred Stock" that was originally issued to the U.S. Treasury under TARP and was subsequently sold by the U.S. Treasury to private investors. The Company was able to repurchase these shares for an aggregate price of $14.34 million, a substantial discount of $1.95 million and also avoided the January 2014 dividend reset to 9%.

Also during the current quarter Parke Bancorp was required to write-off $1.0 million related to three TruPS collateralized debt investment securities, due to the recently enacted Volcker Rule. Financial institutions are no longer permitted to hold these securities in portfolio and Parke Bancorp must dispose of them by July 2015. The three securities, which are comprised of insurance company-issued equities, were written down to fair value at December 31, 2013.

The following is a recap of other significant items that impacted the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the same quarter last year: a $718,000 increase in net interest income primarily attributable to higher loan volumes and lower deposit volumes; a $1.53 million decrease in the gain on the sale of SBA loans; a $1.00 million decrease in the provision for loan losses; and a $1.25 million increase in OREO expense.

At December 31, 2013, Parke Bancorp's total assets increased to $794.94 million from $770.48 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $24.46 million, or 3.2%, due to an increase in loans and investment securities, partially offset by a decrease in cash and cash equivalents.

Parke Bancorp's total loans increased to $654.54 million at December 31, 2013 from $629.71 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $24.83 million or 3.9%.

At December 31, 2013, Parke Bancorp had $35.95 million in nonperforming loans representing 5.5% of total loans, a decrease from $47.55 million at December 31, 2012. OREO at December 31, 2013 was $28.91 million, compared to $26.06 million at December 31, 2012. The increase is a result of non-performing loans being migrated to OREO through the legal process. OREO consisted of 28 properties, the largest being a condominium development recorded at $10.62 million. Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonperforming loans and OREO) represented 8.2% of total assets at December 31, 2013 as compared to 9.6% of total assets at December 31, 2012. Loans past due 30 to 89 days were $3.67 million at December 31, 2013, an increase of $849,000 from the previous quarter.

At December 31, 2013, Parke Bancorp's allowance for loan losses was $18.56 million. The ratio of allowance for loan losses to total loans was 2.8% at December 31, 2013 compared to 3.0% at December 31, 2012. The ratio of allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans improved to 51.6% at December 31, 2013, compared to 39.8% at December 31, 2012.

Parke Bancorp's total investment securities portfolio increased to $37.80 million at December 31, 2013 from $21.41 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $16.39 million or 76.6%. The increase was due to a purchase of mortgage-backed securities for future liquidity purposes.

At December 31, 2013, Parke Bancorp's total deposits were $626.77 million, down from $637.21 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of $10.44 million or 1.6%.

Parke Bancorp's total borrowings increased to $68.68 million at December 31, 2013 from $43.85 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $24.83 million or 56.6%. The increased borrowings were used to fund the above mentioned investment security purchase.

Total shareholders' equity increased to $93.72 million at December 31, 2013 from $83.64 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $10.08 million or 12.1%, due to the retention of earnings and the preferred stock transaction.

Vito S. Pantilione, President and Chief Executive Officer of Parke Bancorp and Parke Bank, provided the following statement:

"It is always great to report record earnings. This was accomplished in a relatively flat economy and in spite of a very recent decision on January 15, 2014, by the government to disallow certain TruPS from a bank's balance sheet. We are seeing increased activity in our loan originations, which has helped support the growth of our interest income. Our biggest challenge continues to be the reduction of our non-performing loans. We have made considerable progress in reducing our NPAs and we anticipate further progress in the coming months. We have carefully avoided selling troubled assets at deep discounts, choosing instead to work these loans out and recovering approximately 80 cents on a dollar, preserving a substantial portion of our shareholders' investment. We are also proud that we successfully completed our $20 million capital raise, enabling us to retire our TARP securities and further support our capital position. Our increased earnings, combined with the reduction in NPAs continue to support shareholder value."

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
